I really like using Entelo. I think it is a great tool for reaching out to candidates directly compared to other types of tools. I think it is a great place to source for diversity candidates.

Their database is primarily focused on engineering type candidates so it is not as useful for non tech candidates.

  • It's a little expensive
  • You have a limited number of outbound emails and profile downloads
  • Sometimes it can take a bit of time for Entelo to give you additional information requests.
Entelo is a great tool for both large and small recruiting teams. I use this with Linkedin Recruiter Light which is nice because I do most of my sourcing through the platform but can toggle between Entelo and LinkedIn. I like to leverage the Entelo Chrome extension so I can go straight to Entelo via a tab on the Linkedin UI. Entelo is less effective if you are not going to be actively souring candidates.

Unlike LInkedIn Recruiter, Entelo lets you contact people directly, not through a platform and they find current e-mail addresses. They enable me to create templates with attachments to send to candidates and also recommend when the best time to send the e-mail would be.
  • Finding e-mail addresses of candidates quickly.

  • Making it easy to send e-mails by letting me save templates.
  • Letting me see who I've already contacted.
  • I think that Entelo needs a stronger "reach" when it comes to Indeed resumes. I find it very hard to contact Indeed candidates.

  • Letting me take back an e-mail that will be sent would be nice.
  • Letting me know if I'm sending multiple emails.
Very well suited for sourcing for candidates who get a lot of contacts through LInkedIn and who are professional, like developers and more seasoned professionals. Not as suitable for junior candidates who don't have a huge social media presence because they don't have a lot of e-mails out there to be found.

Review: "Get spy-level depth on Entelo! And find great engineers :)"

About half of our recruiting team of 15 people uses Entelo for our sourcing and prospecting needs. It helps us uncover talent for specific roles that we may not be able to find otherwise. It is particularly helpful for more technical roles, especially engineering and dev roles. It's another repository of information in terms of who has reached out, and when. The data isn't always updated, but we can usually work around that.
  • Great search functionality and lots of different criteria to filter with
  • The Sonar feature is helpful for passive sourcing and always starting your day with 5 (ideally) qualified candidates
  • It's great when the specific filters work well (e.g. More Likely to Move, Diversity, etc.)
  • The reporting functionalities and charts are helpful to know which kind of messaging is working
  • Lots of old data and outdated profiles
  • Not a very intuitive UI - the product's peripheries and its overall design could use a lot of work
  • Not easy to track who's been reached out to from each list
Entelo is a great place to start for someone in a sourcing role on a recruiting team. It would be helpful for anyone diving into a new role where they need to build a candidate pipeline, AND they have very specific parameters to filter down to, in order to seek the ideal candidate. It's not as good as LinkedIn for business-focused roles, we've found. This is because a lot of engineers don't tend to be as receptive in InMail as they are to receiving an email right to their inbox.

Entelo Review: "Find, contact, track candidates"

Score 10 out of 10

I use Entelo to search for, contact, and track interactions with candidates. The ability to directly email candidates using templates and auto followups has been very useful. I use this as my primary search tool, and verify data against LinkedIn as a secondary source.
  • Entelo has emails on file for most technical candidates, and can quickly find new or alternative emails for candidates. Sometimes this takes a few days, but it usually only takes a matter of minutes or seconds.
  • The ability to track my searches and emails send it very helpful, but more so is the ability to see who's read and clicked through on my emails. The new tracking dashboard are even easier to use and read.
  • Customer support is extremely responsive. Usually within seconds, I can reach someone if I have a question or concern.
  • Candidate profile information (job titles, current company, etc) can be a bit dated and require a verification with LinkedIn.
  • The new Reports page is still needing some work. The stats are very clear and can't be fully interacted with, in that some stats, such as Emails Sent, do not explain whether that's a complete number or a mix of first and follow up.
  • From a candidate's profile, I cannot click on an email in the Activity field to see which address I sent their last reach out to. If I want to know which email I already used that they did not open, I have to go through several additional steps to find which email I already used so that I can try an alternative one.
If only for the ability to have automatic followup messages sent, this tool is very helpful. Add in the ability to find correct email addresses, send and track emails... this tool is very useful. My Entelo response rate is almost double my LinkedIn message response rate.
